    FlickrBackup Updated version, hosted at Javaforge at:
    is project based on original Sourceforge FlickrBackup at:

    I created this project, because the original author Andrew Serff (serff at,
    who deserves all the credit for the original project, is not reachable. I hate to do it that way, I would prefer to
    to share my enhancements with the original project, but I do not have any other option. I hope, that this is
    not considered project hijacking 8-), on the contrary, I am trying to find the way to share my contribution
    with the community.

    The original project web site is at

    I have made some considerable enhancements to the project, and would like to keep the new source under source control.
    I would also like to make the enhancements I made available for others.

      What do you mean I'm not reachable? I don't remember seeing an email form you...sorry if I missed one. I would much rather you just make changes to this project instead of creating a new one...let me know if you would like that.  I can give you access to CVS if you would.  I guess I don't like you hijacking my project....

        Andrew, just send you an email explaining the situation. Somehow I could not reach even if I tried several times. The "project hijacking" was only temporary before I manage yo reach you. I hope my email reached you and we can merge the projects and I can delete the Javaforge project.
